How do I submit my app to the App Store?
If you’re a 57Digital customer the entire publishing process is managed by us on your behalf. However, for the curious amongst you… here is how it works!
Step 1 Testing
It’s vital that you make the perfect impression with your customer, therefore we will send you an exclusive version of the app to install on your iPhone.
Once you’re 100% happy with the app, you’ll need to tell us everything is okay before we proceed onto step two.
Step 2 Seller Information
We will send you a document which requests a bunch of information about your app, including: Seller name, App name, description, pricing info etc. You return this back to us and we will notify Apple about your sale requirements.
Step 3 Distribution
We will send Apple the final application for them to verify. Typically it can take between one and two weeks for Apple to ‘approve’ an application for sale within the App Store. If there are any problems, Apple will get in touch and let us know if we need to change anything.
Step 4 Enjoy the profits
Apple will wire any revenue directly into your registered bank account… allow you to buy something rather luxurious!
We don’t like using jargon, but here are the jargon terms we have to use:
- We submit the application using iTunes Connect (http://itunesconnect.apple.com)
- For testing, we need to provision the app for your device. In order for us to do this you must send us your UDID (unique device identifier) – you can do this with an app like “UDID Sender”
- Pricing information for your app is done on a “price matrix”, we can send you a copy of this if you want to see the available selling prices
